Quotes

Look at the facts of the world. You see a continual and progressive triumph of the right. I do not pretend to understand the moral universe, the arc is a long one, my eye reaches but little ways. I cannot calculate the curve and complete the figure by the experience of sight; I can divine it by conscience. But from what I see I am sure it bends towards justice.
- Theodore Parker (QI)

Examine each question in terms of what is ethically and esthetically right, as well as what is economically expedient. A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.
- Aldo Leopold

Don't wait for strangers to remind you of your duty, you have a conscience and a spirit for that. All the good you do must come from your own initiative.
- Popul Vuh

You cannot ask everyone to behave ethically.
- Sepp Blatter, cited in Planet Futbol - SI.com

Essay
What's missing from the Code of Ethics is a code for the tourism ministries/secretariats themselves. Governments are not being asked to be transparent or accountable. Far too much operational matters are conducted behind closed doors without involvement of locals and visitors. Ethics thus becomes do as we say instead of do as we do.

Quotes

A man is truly ethical only when he obeys the compulsion to help all life which he is able to assist, and shrinks from injuring anything that lives.
- Albert Schweitzer

At a recent conference, when a leading international hotel chain boasted its ethical practices in the Caribbean, announcing that it was now buying all its jam from an island producer, I challenged it: “Why stop at jam? Surely there are so many other products you could source locally?” to which the response was, “Have you any idea what that would do to our profit margins? And anyway, we employ hundreds of people here every year, which is more than they had before we arrived.” Bread and circus, with jam flavouring to hide the real taste, I thought.
- Catherine Mack, Adding up the value of ethics

Don't wait for strangers to remind you of your duty, you have a conscience and a spirit for that. All the good you do must come from your own initiative.
